TEO SOH LUNG: CHINA DIDN'T DETAIN TERREX BEFORE DOESN'T MEAN THAT SG WAS DOING THE RIGHT THING

I was startled when I read Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen’s statement in My Paper today. “The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and the Government will start proceedings to recover the armoured vehicles seized in Hong Kong once the reasons for their detention are made clear”. The report went on to say that Dr Ng said that “… the Terrex has been transported by commercial carriers ever since it was introduced” and that “Singapore has not suffered any loss or detention of equipment prior to this incident.”

HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER: NEVER TRUST THE PAP, NO GOVT EVER WANTS TO LOSE POWER

I am often told that Singaporeans don’t care about the ISA. The fact that this law has been with us for nearly 70 years is taken for granted and even with respect. Our country’s stability and orderliness are frequently attributed to the presence of this law. I learnt my lesson never to trust the government in 1987! No government wants to lose power. The PAP is no exception. The ISA is too useful a tool for any government. Today, there are about 23 Muslims in prison under the ISA. Three of them have been in prison for about 14 years. We do not know if they had done any wrong because there is no trial.

POLICE TOLD TEO SOH LUNG TO RETRIEVE ITEMS CONFISCATED DURING RAID BUT REFUSE TO LET HER BRING PHONE & DIDN'T RETURN HER IC

From what Soh Lung said on her Facebook, the police only told her that she needed to go back today to collect the devices that they seized from her last week.

Soh Lung had said: "I don't know if the police have another trick up their sleeves. It is hard to trust them. But what can I do except to be prepared for the worst to happen? I may be subjected to another round of interrogation, threats and perhaps arrested. I don't know."

She was right. When she got to the police station just now, the police would not let her bring her phone and powerbank up with her to the supposed "appointment".

It did not feel like an appointment. It felt like a trap. They wanted to interrogate her further but pretended that it was only about letting her collect her devices.

It was clear the police was up to something. They did not want her to bring her phone so that she would be trapped and could not contact anyone. The police wanted to keep her from contacting anyone so that they could intimidate her further.

S'POREAN POET: WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY BEING LESS AFRAID & STAND UP TO OPPRESSION

Today I had tea with Teo Soh Lung, who lives near my place. She wanted to go buy a new laptop because it's likely that the police forensics are going to take their own sweet time with the laptop (and desktop) that they confiscated. I think the raid they conducted was outrageous. For too long the ones who have been standing up to oppression have been lone individuals of extraordinary courage and conviction. But we can also make a difference just by being a little less afraid. But there must be many of us. Because then this is how fear dissipates.

WORKERS PARTY STANDS UP FOR ROY NGERNG, URGES POLICE TO BE IMPARTIAL IN INVESTIGATIONS

The Workers’ Party is concerned about the manner in which the current investigations into alleged violations of “Cooling Off Day” regulations are reportedly being conducted. We understand from the public record that other individuals or entities who were reported for similar violations in the past were not known to have faced the same lengthy interviews, and searches and seizures of personal equipment.

WHY IS THERE A MEDIA BLACKOUT ON POLICE'S HARASSMENT OF ROY NGERNG & TEO SOH LUNG?

This should surprise no one, but there is total silence in the state media on yesterday's egregious police harassment of Roy Ngerng and Teo Soh Lung.

People said of Benjamin Lim, "But there've been so many investigations, and he's the only one where this happened!" Well, he's the only one you know of, because the state media is worse than useless on questions of civil liberties and due process. And you know about him only because TOC forced their hand.

People scoffed, "This is Singapore; cover-ups don't happen!" Which gets it exactly backwards. This is Singapore, and the cover-up is so complete you don't even notice.

Ngerng and Teo have both been subjected to long interviews in police headquarters this morning. The police then proceeded to search both their homes for over two hours. During the search, they were not allowed to make any phone calls.

LAWYER REMY CHOO: WHY THE EXTREME POLICE ACTION TAKEN FOR COOLING DAY OFFENCES?

I arrived at Soh Lung Teo's house today at about 2.20 p.m. while 7 - 8 police officers were in the midst of seizing her handphone, desktop and laptop. I asked the IO, Angie Ng, why the police had to seize her electronic devices given that Soh Lung was not disputing the publication of the articles on her personal Facebook page on cooling off day. I was disappointed with the police action. The seizure of a person's electronic devices is gravely disruptive to their personal lives, and the these devices contain large amounts of personal private data irrelevant to the investigation.

TWO S'POREANS UNDER POLICE INVESTIGATION FOR FLOUTING BUKIT BATOK COOLING DAY

The Assistant Returning Officer has filed police reports against socio-political website The Independent Singapore (TISG), CPF activist Roy Ngerng and Teo Soh Lung for publishing online articles to supporter Opposition candidate Dr Chee Soon Juan during Cooling Off Day and Polling Day during the recent Bukit Batok By-election. The ARO said TISG, Mr Ngerg and Ms Teo were entities or individuals who regularly engage in the discussion and propagation of political issues, hence they should be held accountable and responsible for what they publish.
